Mock Courtroom (Legal Environment of Business – Semester 1)


This innovative initiative was applied in the course of Legal Environment of Business in Semester 1. Each group is assigned a well-established case law relevant to the provision of the Act in the Course Plan. The group members take up the specific roles from the case law and present the case as a roleplay in the class session. The group also uses PPT to demonstrate specific facts of the case. After the roleplay, the students raise questions or seek clarification from the presenting groups. The group is evaluated on the basis of Group Presentation rubrics. The benefit of this innovative method is that students get deeper insights about the provisions of the Act due to experiential learning.
